Raging Against the Machine! is the second in the series of memoirs How Did I Get Here? The first volume, Rebel Without a Clue!, told the story of a young boy growing up in the 1960s/70s in north-east Scotland. That young boy grew up to be me, Gordon Craigie. Readers said nice things about it, such as:
“Great book – well written and funny”
“Really enjoyed having a pleasant, entertaining distraction from the chaos that’s going on in the world right now. Many of your stories triggered memories of my own experiences”
“Enjoyed your memories from being a young boy to a man and all you experienced in between … looking forward to Volume 2”
And so, by popular demand (?), it gives me great pleasure to present Volume 2: Raging Against the Machine! This book picks up where the first one left off and meanders through the 1980s/90s into the early years of this century – how scary does that sound? As I recall the ups and downs of adult life and career progression, I think I have indeed managed to prove conclusively that older doesn’t necessarily mean wiser! And there’s still Volume 3 to come… what’s not to like?
